Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo helped off court with calf injury

Two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo exited the Milwaukee Bucks’ 104-91 victory over the Boston Celtics in the third quarter Tuesday night due to an injury to his left calf. Antetokounmpo was heading up the court following a made 3-pointer from Celtics guard Derrick White when the Bucks star crumbed to floor without contact while grabbing at his left leg. He stayed on the floor as the Bucks called a timeout, and his teammates helped carry him off the court and toward the locker room. Antetokounmpo was officially ruled out of the game in the fourth quarter with what the team called a left soleus strain. The soleus is a […]

Jayson Tatum scored 31 points on Wednesday night to help the Boston Celtics collect their seventh game in a row, taking advantage of the absence of two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo to defeat the Milwaukee Bucks 122-119.

Red Sox, Brayan Bello agree to 6-year, $55M extension

Right-hander Brayan Bello and the Boston Red Sox have agreed to a six-year, $55 million contract extension, sources told ESPN, locking up the hard-throwing 24-year-old whose changeup is already one of the best in Major League Baseball. The deal includes a seventh-year club option worth $21 million, according to sources. The Red Sox revealed the six-year agreement but did not disclose terms. In his first full big league season last year, Bello went 12-11 with a 4.24 ERA and struck out 132 against 45 walks in 157 innings. For an organization that has struggled in recent years to develop big league starting pitching, Bello […]

Surging Oklahoma City Thunder hold off Boston Celtics

Add another contender to the Oklahoma City Thunder’s list of impressive recent conquests. The Thunder built a big lead over Boston and held off a late comeback bid for a 127-123 win Tuesday night over the Celtics, owners of the NBA’s best record. Oklahoma City has gained eight of its past nine games, putting the Thunder second in the Western Conference at 23-9. That span has featured victories over elite competition, including the first-place teams from both conferences (the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Celtics) and the defending champion Denver Nuggets, who Oklahoma City beat twice on the road. “That’s a talented young team, and I don’t believe this […]

Braves acquire Chris Sale, cash from Red Sox for Vaughn Grissom

The Atlanta Braves attained left-hander Chris Sale from the Boston Red Sox for infielder Vaughn Grissom on Saturday, shoring up their rotation with the seven-time All-Star they hope rounds out a World Series-caliber roster. Sale waived his no-trade clause to consummate the deal, which followed months of efforts from the Braves to add a starting pitcher to a rotation that already includes Spencer Strider, Max Fried and Charlie Morton. Although Grissom had been part of prospective trades this winter, including offers for Chicago White Sox right-hander Dylan Cease, he wound up being what it took to get Sale, who will go to Atlanta along with $17 million to offset his $27.5 million salary in 2024, […]

RHP Lucas Giolito, Red Sox reach 2-year

Right-hander Lucas Giolito and the Boston Red Sox are in agreement on a two-year, $38.5 million contract, sources told ESPN, locking up the innings-eating veteran as the starting pitching market starts to move. The deal includes an opt-out after the first season and includes innings-based performance bonuses that can bring the total value to $40.5 million. Giolito’s deal with Boston gives him an $18 million salary in 2024 and a $1 million buyout if he opts out. If not, his salary for 2025 is $19 million. There is a conditional option for 2026 — a $14 million club option if he throws under 140 […]

Red Sox trade Alex Verdugo to Yankees for three pitchers

The Yankees acquired outfielder Alex Verdugo from the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday night, with New York turning to the 27-year-old to improve its offense in just the eighth trade between the rivals since the start of the Divisional Era in 1969. The Red Sox received right-handers Richard Fitts, Greg Weissert and Nicholas Judice in the deal. Verdugo spent the last four seasons in Boston after joining the Red Sox as the main return in the trade that sent star outfielder Mookie Betts to the Los Angeles Dodgers. Verdugo, who is arranged to make around $9 million in his final season of arbitration, hit .264/.324/.421 with 13 home runs and 54 RBIs […]

Aaron Judge hit a grand slam, DJ LeMahieu broke an eighth-inning tie with an RBI double, and the New York Yankees defeated the Boston Red Sox 8-5 on Thursday night to split a doubleheader. Oswald Peraza hit his first career homer, a two-run shot in the ninth for the Yankees (74-73), who won three of four at Boston to draw even with their rival at the bottom of the AL East. “Incredible moment right there for me. We wanted those runs in that inning,” Peraza said through a translator. “To be able to come through and connect there was incredible. We were able to win the series which […]

An overturned call at the plate in the eighth inning led to the latest loss in what’s become the New York Yankees’ worst season in decades. The Yankees extended a losing streak to eight for the first time in 28 years, allowing Justin Turner’s ninth-inning go-ahead double in a 6-5 defeat to the Boston Red Sox on Sunday. “We got to be unbelievable the rest of the way,” manager Aaron Boone stated after the Yankees dropped to 60-64 and fell nine games behind Seattle for the AL’s last wild card spot. New York appeared to break a 5-5 tie in the eighth when Isiah […]
